comment How do I get brightness working on a Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga?
This worked well for me on my ThinkPad T430, and fits in with the bug discussion on the kernel change which caused it.

comment “cannot determine current directory” while building Haskell in 13.04
They can't package the platform for 13.04 because 13.04 has GHC 7.6, whereas the current platform release requires 7.4. I'd love some reasoning behind the decision to ship 7.6 before the platform's updated to use it, but I haven't found any yet.

comment How to install Haskell Platform for Ubuntu 13.04?
GHC is not the same as the Haskell Platform, which is a collection of particular versions of particular libraries alongside a particular version of the compiler.

One wonders why, knowing that there's no Platform release including GHC 7.6 yet, they chose to ship GHC 7.6 and thus break Haskell development for a lot of people.

comment Two notifications for empathy and no notification preferences tab?
This is the easiest way to do it. The problem seems to be that Empathy is sending notifications via the usual method, but Shell doesn't need that - it intervenes in the Telepathy channels, which is how it offers inline reply functionality. So turning off Empathy notifications leaves you with just Shell's popups and no more annoying duplicates.
